Tuesday, April 23

Our P.E.I. school community has been sadden by the unfortunate deaths of Josh Underhay, a teacher at Birchwood Intermediate School, and his son, Oliver.  It is a tragedy that touches us all.

Many schools are asking that students and staff wear green out of respect for Josh.  As our children are young and not closely connected to these deaths, we will leave it to parents to decide whether their children will wear green as they know best the knowledge their children have of this circumstance and what conversations have taken place.

Our Greenfield flag will be at half mast and it will be a quiet day of respect for Josh and his family.

Plastic Bag Grab Team

During Earth Week 2019, schools across Canada were challenged to learn and take action on plastic waste.  At Greenfield, we participated in The Plastic Bag Grab. Classes collected as many bags as they could and a tally was kept to see which class could collect the most.  In total to date, we have collected 11,909 bags!  Our class winners are 6A who collected 4020 and 1B who collected 1166. These bags will be taken to Walmart who will sent them to a company called Trex where they will be recycled into plastic lumber to make decks, benches and other outdoor furniture.

Thank you for your support! We are all winners when we reduce, reuse and recycle plastic waste.  Members of our Grade 6A class with Mme. Robyn organized the event and counted all those bags!  The collecting of bags will continue next week.

Here is a picture of our Plastic Grab Bag Team.

April News!

Here is news about some activities coming up in April:

  1. On Monday, April 8th, schools across Canada will be participating in Green Shirt Day. Last April, the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash impacted the entire country. One of the players, Logan Boulet, was able to save six people through organ donation. His gift showed there is always hope, even in times of great tragedy.  Students can participate on April 8th by wearing a green shirt or a jersey in support of all those affected by the Broncos accident, and to honour Logan’s legacy of selfless giving.
  2. A Math Night will be held here at Greenfield Elementary on Tuesday, April 16th at 6:30 in the library.  Parents hear much about the “new math” that students are learning. This will be an opportunity to hear about math instruction and the strategies children learn.  David Costello, our Vice Principal, who has much experience and expertise in teaching math, will be joined by Mme. Kim Gallant and Ms. Lindsay Baillie. They will provide an engaging and informative evening for parents who would like to know what their children are learning and how to support them at home.  Parents of children in all grades are welcome to attend.
  3. All orders for April HotLunches should be paid by tomorrow – Friday, April 5th.
  4. We are all wondering if the colder weather will ever come to an end! It has not left us yet – at least this week.  We have had many students who have not been dressed well for the weather this week.  Please take care to see that your child has what they need for the conditions.
  5. Professional Development Day on Friday, April 12th.
